Which hotels in vic falls are suitable for people in wheelchairs.

Answer:
This is a very good question and I'm going to contact the hotels to get clearer details for you. I know which hotels are wheelchair friendly on the outside, but don't know which ones have specific rooms which cater for wheelchairs.

Golf carts at Victoria Falls to assist disabled visitors.
by: Jennifer Forbes

I have just visited Victoria Falls. I am disabled to the extent I cannot walk distances. We had the use of a wheelchair to visit the Falls. My husband - neatly 80 was doing the pushing. Whilst wonderful to have a " hard surface" path it is not what would be described " wheelchair friendly": Tree roots, humos and holes all make pushing much harder. At times the gradient is steep up or steep down and thebsurface can be slippery when wet. My husband did a sterling job but at times I was forced to step out and walk with stick as too hard to push. We have niw moved onto The River Lodge within the Zambezi National Park. Their guest rooms are set out over a kilometre drive. They have acquired Two Golf buggies to transfer guests to and from them rooms. It occurs to me some Golf Carts at Victoria Falls would provide the ideal solution for caring for your less mobile visitors. Please put this suggestion to your next meeting and aim to action this great facility adap.
We cannot let disabled visitors be treated as second class guests. If you aim to please, investigate what steps to take to enhance the experience of visiting the Victoria Falls as a disabled visitor. You will please so many of us.
As a useful exercuse : put an able bodied member of you staff in a wheelchair and TRY to visit even the Town of Victoria
Falls getting pushed in a wheelchair. It won’t take them long
to see your roads and pavements are wholly inadequate.

Golf carts for disabled visitors
by: jennifer Forbes

We have recently stayed at Victoria Falls Hotel. It was very good to have a ground floor room but to take a shower I needed to get into the bath. While standing up in bath there was no handrail at a suitable height to give added security. Pleased advise,, do any ground floor bedrooms at Victoria Falls hotel have stand alone showers.

Wheelchair friendly in Victoria falls
by: Tony

Dear Hilda

Lokuthula is not wheelchair friendly I am afraid, quite a few steps and bathrooms that are not fitted out.

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge however on the same property, is wheelchair friendly it has lifts and ramps and there are some rooms I believe that are disable friendly. Bit more expensive than Lokuthula but lovely hotel one of the most popular in Victoria falls.

Available wheelchairs
by: Anthony

If you need it for doing a tour of the Falls, then there are certain operators that have them available for the tour only. We can arrange this for you when you book it through us.
There is also one available for hire at the Falls entrance gate but I can't guarantee that it is always there and working well.
If you need it for your entire stay, then as far as I am aware there is no where that hires one out but many of the bigger hotels will have one available for their guests.
